A deputy clocked the car traveling more than 90 mph on SR 20 at the Chipola River, according to Calhoun County Sheriff Glenn Kimbrel. Deputy Patrick Crawford caught up with the trio just as they were about to enter Blountstown. After the deputy came toward the car, there was only "brief contact" before the The suspects were three black males, one with long dreadlocks, one with shorter dreadlocks and one with short hair. A resident in the area of 22nd Street in Blountstown reported hearing sirens and one gunshot around 11:30 p.m. as deputies arrived to search for the men who appeared to be heading toward the Sam Atkins Park area. "Nobody was shooting at anybody," the sheriff said, explaining that a and fell in an area thick with vines. Dog tracking teams were called out from the prisons in Calhoun and Liberty counties. They continued to look for the men until the search was called off around 3 a.m., the sheriff said. A live 9mm round was found in the rental car, which had been left on the side of SR 20 near Cumbaa Monuments. KENDRICK HAYES TAHQUAN RANDALL MARVIN DEAN by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor "We haven't found him but it has not been for the lack of trying," said Liberty County Emergency Management Director Rhonda Lewis about the search for a missing Bristol man. Ten days after he disappeared in the Apalachicola River, volunteers along with search and rescue groups continue to look for Curtis Anders. Lewis estimates that anywhere between 50 and 75 people have been on the water assisting with the search. Four FSU divers from Panama City came to Liberty County Tuesday and explored the muddy depths of the river as a helicopter monitored the waters from above. "We've had a lot of people from other counties come and offer us additional resources including additional boats, sonars, a mobile command unit and banks of light for the land," she said. Cadaver dogs have been brought in from several areas, including Mobile and Pensacola, according to Lewis. "We've had at least two Liberty County deputies on the water every day and the Calhoun County their helicopter," she said. She added that Sheriff Finch has been busy locating much-needed resources as well as tracking dogs and extra boats. The rising river level following recent rains has her concerned. "The Apalachicola River is supposed to rise to 15.5. That doesn't help," she said. "It makes the current so swift that it's kind of dangerous out there." The search area stretches about 18 miles from the Estiffanulga Boat Landing in Liberty County downriver to Gaskin Landing in Gulf County. "We've had people stationed from one end to the other," Lewis said. "It's just a sad situation, but we're all doing the best we can," she said. A Quincy man was hospitalized in critical condition when he lost control of his 2000 Ford Expedition during a heavy rainstorm in Bristol Monday evening. The driver, Gerardo Reyes, was pulled from the wreckage after his truck hit a culvert and rolled over. The vehicle came to rest right-side up. The wreck happened just past the second entrance road at Lake Mystic around 10:30 p.m. Reyes was transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital by Liberty EMS. JOHNNY EUBANKS PHOTO Family waits and hopes as searchers comb the river by Teresa Eubanks, Journal Editor says Elaine Anders about her son, Curtis. "I cannot understand what happened unless he got hurt and could not swim." The family of Curtis Anders, 52, and many friends, neighbors and volunteer search and rescue teams have been waiting for ten days for some sign of him after he was seen struggling in the water and on March 9. Despite the sorrow the family is experiencing, they have been heartened by the support they have received. "Everybody has been so good bringing food galore, water, drinks, ice and everything we need," she said Tuesday afternoon. She and her husband, Jerry, spend their days at the Estiffanulga Boat Landing where her son was last seen. While they go home later in the evening, many others stay, taking turns sleeping in two RVs brought to the site. She said volunteers told her they would continue to search the Apalachicola River as long as the family wanted them to. Before they go into the water, she said, "We're encouraging everybody that goes out there to put their life jackets on and keep them on." Curtis' younger brothers, Brian Anders and Bruce Anders, are among those searching the water each day. "They're both taking it pretty hard," their mother said. "Curtis was their big brother." She describes her missing son as a family man who enjoyed helping others. She said Curtis was always dependable, steady and kind. Two memories of him stand out for her. She recalls how good he was to fry up an unending their 50th wedding anniversary. When he was just a youngster who came forward to be baptized in Lake Mystic, she recalls fondly how when he emerged from the water, he didn't wait to be congratulated. "When he came out he went and hugged everybody," she said proudly. The family hopes each day that his body will be a memorial service," his mother said. "That seems so empty." But Tuesday afternoon, the atmosphere was not one of mourning. Anyone watching from a distance would think they were having a family reunion. "It's drawn the family closer together," she said, sing from hymnals. Many of Curtis and his wife, Donifan's 11 grandchildren are with the family at the river landing. "I've got these little great-grandchildren following me around. That helps," she explained. "There's not a lot of crying going on here," she said, although she is aware that later, when everyone goes their separate ways, it will hit them and they will fully feel their loss. Bristol, FL W ednesday MARCH 19, 2014 Vol. 34 No. 12 of drug activity," the sheriff said, explaining several small baggies were discovered in the car. Kimbrel said efforts are being made to find out who paid for the car but he believes it is likely that a false ID was used at the Tallahassee business where it was rented. Early Sunday morning, deputies established a perimeter in the area around the park and were noticed a vehicle driving toward the park, which was closed. After driving up to the locked gate, the vehicle made a U-turn and headed back. When the vehicle came in sight of a patrol car it slowed down and made a sudden turn at a residence. Three black males were in the vehicle but were not the men they were looking for, according to Kimbrel. "I felt like they are trying to avoid us but ran right into us as we were checking everyone in the area," he said. "They said they were stopping to see someone, but when we knocked on the door, the people at the house didn't know them," he said. The homeowner, was sitting out front when the car whipped into my yard. She said one of the men in the car asked if he could come in and use their bathroom. Her son said no. We had never seen them before, she said. I was shocked. She said patrol cars arrived just a moment later. I had the whole sheriffs department in my front yard, she said. It was pretty scary. When deputies checked the vehicle, they found what the sheriff called "a felony amount of marijuana." One bag of marijuana was discovered on the front passenger's side; another was found on the ground outside the front passenger's door. charged with resisting arrest without violence after he repeatedly refused to keep his hands out of his pockets and on the vehicle. Front seat passenger Marvin Dean, 19, was charged with possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana. Tahquan Randall, 26, was charged with possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana. All three men listed Tallahassee addresses. J OURNAL THE CALHOUNLIBERTY } 50 includes tax

Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL MARCH 19, 2014 How unpopular is Wash ington in the rest of the country? While its true that Congress as an institu tion has never been highly prized by most Americans, many of us continued to hold a soft spot for our own member of Congress who, we were sure, was different from and better than his or her ethically challenged congressional col leagues who would steal a hot stove and then go back for the smoke. Well, it turns out, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, that a erybody in Congress. Heres the question: If there were a place on your ballot that al lowed you to vote to defeat and replace ev ery single member of Congress, including your own representative, would you do it? By a solid 54-42 percent margin, American voters answered yes to giving the boot to So for a much-needed break from the negative news, March brought Washing tons annual Gridiron Dinner, where there are by tradition, after 129 years, just three speakers -a Democrat, a Republican and the president or his designated hitter -who are expected to be humorous. And this years event provided some chuckles. Freshman Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, a tea party favorite who has never publican speaker. After acknowledging that he had already, in just one year, alienated many of his GOP Senate colleagues, Cruz addressed Secretary of State John Kerry, President Barack Obamas substitute: John Kerry crossed the world to be here. What a treat it must be for him to share the dais with one of only three senators who voted against his nomination to be secretary of state. Lets put it behind us, Mr. Secretary, to lose. Cruz, a Harvard-educated lawyer, spoke of his much-criticized confrontation with Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, I was accused of acting like some pompous know-itall. Were all familiar with the type, and at Harvard Law School, there is even a word for it: alumni. Re ferring to his Born in Canada business, he said: Canadians are so polite, mild-man nered, modest, unassuming, open-minded. being so openly self-deprecating, Cruz sur prised, and perhaps even neutralized, many in the audience who had not been his fans. Charlie Crist, the former Republican governor of Florida who is running for that same job now as a Democrat, was the Democratic speaker. He introduced him self, admitting, Im a guy with a healthy ego. But every time my ego gets a little bit out of control, my wife Carole reminds me that John McCain considered me and Sarah Palin for vice president and decided Sarah The evenings unexpected star was Ker ry, who, after complimenting the formally attired journalists in their white tie and tails, needled the White House: Presi dent Obama asked me to tell you: If you like your rented tuxedo, you can keep it. Kerry praised the evenings Democratic speaker before asking, Is Charlie Crist still here? I had to check -hes always so quick to leave a party. Then, turning to Cruz, he added: Ted was actually only one of three tion. In his defense, it was only because he doesnt believe that men should be secre taries. If Kerry had been half as loose and funny during his 2004 campaign, he could have won and then been forced to explain just why he had picked John Edwards to be his vice president. It was a rare night of bipartisan laughter too seriously. Washington needs a lot more of that. Washington actually laughs at itself COMMENTARY Late Night Laughs A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. This week the White House said the economy is continuing to pick up steam, but then went on to say that the unemployment rate is still unac ceptably high. Incidentally, being unacceptably high is also a big reason many people are unem ployed. JIMMY FALLON It was so dark in Washington that when the pow er went out the only thing that was glowing was John Boehners face. DAVID LETTERMAN A new study says Americans spent a record $56 billion on their pets last year. That may sound like a lot but think about what you get in return. You get the unconditional love of dogs, the ex gives you disdain, I guess. CRAIG FERGUSON Austin, Texas, during the South by Southwest festival.

Crimea is now holding a vote on whether to join Russia, but the ballot doesnt have an option for voting against the plan it lets people vote for join ing Russia now, or down the road.

MARCH 19, 2014 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL Page 9 The deer that got away (and the squirrel that didnt) Of all the family members I write about, I realize that my two oldest brothers, Mack and Hentz, are the ones who appear least frequently. For his part, Hentz has been noticeably tightlipped since I started committing these stories to print. Which makes sense because his advice when I started my blog was, Be careful that you dont write anything now that could be admitted as evidence later. Also, I still like to use his boat pretty often, so I havent really pushed the issue. Mack lives in Denver these days, so we dont get to talk as much as we used to. But recently, he and Hentz gave me their individual perspectives on a story about the together. As young teens, our father took them to the camp to go hunting. The plan was to drop off Mack on one of the old roads going down to the slough. Daddy and Hentz then rode further up the swamp where he was going to put Hentz out. As Hentz tells it, after Mack got out, they had only gone a few hundred yards when Daddy hit the brakes, pointed out the window and said, Theres a buck right there. Shoot him. Hentz pointed his shotgun out the window in that general direction, but all he could see was trees. Shoot him! Daddy said, now with even more enthusiasm. Hentz still didnt see the deer. Boy, hes right there. Shoot him before he runs off. At this point, Hentz decided it best just to trees and hope for the best. When he did, the buck magically appeared nowhere near where hed aimed and now on a dead run through the woods. He shot a couple more times just for good measure. When it was obvious that the deer was still in excellent health, Hentz his favorite expression: My achin back! Then it occurred to him that the deer was headed directly toward where they had put Mack out just a few minutes before. Maybe Mack will see him, Daddy said. As soon as he said the words, they heard a shotgun blast from back up the road. Ha! I bet he got him, Daddy said. And with his hope for the next generation restored, they drove back as fast as they could. Sure enough, there was Mack, standing in the road with a big grin on his face. According to Mack, he could see Daddy smiling too as they rolled up. But the smile suddenly disappeared as Mack proudly displayed the fox squirrel hed just killed. According to both Mack and Hentz, the ride home was pretty tense that day. Calhoun County native Jim McClellan grew JIM McCLELLANS OUTDOORS Down South Springtime in Florida. Its a time of transition, from days spent in the woods hunting wild game to getting out on the water in search of our abundant freshwater or have a little bit of turkey hunting to do, so that makes it an easy transition for many of us. As we prepare for our days on the water, many of us have kids who will be eager to get behind the wheel of a boat. Or, in the case of us in inland Florida, they might want to operate the tiller handle of a 20 horsepower outboard. Either way, its time for a boater safety course. If your child was born on or after January 1, 1988, the course is mandatory if they want to operate a boat with a motor of 10 horsepower or larger. There are many options available to your child and most of them cost money. The Florida Virtual School, however, offers a FREE alternative. Its called the Outdoor Education Course. In June 2013, when the course was just becoming available, I wrote about it on Outdoors Down South. The course combines the traditional Florida Boater Safety course and the Florida Hunter Safety courses, into a combined single course that is worth half a credit in Florida schools. It also counts as a P.E. credit and it meets Floridas requirement that a child take a course online. Its available to Florida public school, private school or home school students. Since its inception, over 1,500 kids in Florida have completed the course and another 1,000 are currently enrolled. By exposing kids to both hunting and boater safety, we hope to increase the number of kids who are out on the a safe and responsible manner. Please help spread the word sign up for the Outdoor Education Course. Remember, it is FREE!
